I often find myself sitting in complete stillness. The stillness is completely unplanned, it just happens.
People associate stillness with laziness, with death and deem it as something pointless and time wasting. What if I could show you how stillness could save you time and add immense value to your life?
Moments ago I was sat in the darkness of my room doing nothing but being still. I had no plans and no will or effort to do anything.
Here I am moments later creating a blog post and being productive. So where did this sudden urge to write come from? The stillness of my mind and body.
Imagine for a moment if you may, that there is a little man living inside your head. Lets say for the sakes of this explanation, he has all the ideas and secrets you need to discover right there in his little home, your brain. He is sitting there waiting for you to call him up, ask him for guidance so that he can finally shower you with all the help, guidance and direction you need in life. The problem is with this is that most people do not wish to quieten the mind and to listen to this man. They believe that all the answers are outside of the mind, in the outside world. The truth is, you will find nothing outside because all of the answers are inside.
So, I invite you for a moment to sit in complete silence, in a comfortable position with all external lights, movements and sounds not present. Do not think of anything, think of nothing. If you cannot think of nothing, allow your thoughts to sprout one by one, let them come in and then let them go on. Just be present in the moment and allow all external noises to be gone. Listen to your inner self and allow your mind to wonder. You may be surprised by what you learn. If you practice this enough you will eventually do it naturally without planning on doing it. Ideas will flow more freely and you will be very surprised by how much more creative you become and how much more work you can get on with. Giving the mind a rest from the outside world will work wonders. Giving the little man in your head sometime to talk to you will be rewarding, trust me.
Your soul, also known as your higher self is there always. It has all the guidance and answers you need in this lifetime. You just need to learn to control your human self and learn to stop everything and be still.
STILLNESS is not just for sleeping and it is not about being lazy. Stillness is life, it is everything. Just be still and watch life keep moving, slow yourself down and learn to be present in the moment. Evaluate what Is actually happening in your life right now and just check that you are doing the right thing on your journey. We tend to run around all our lives rushing into things and not thinking about anything properly. We want more. We are greedy. We want more noise, we want more tv, we want more entertainment, we want people to be around us to talk to. We want to do the opposite to what we really should be doing. Society has its ways of leading us away from the good things and the right things we are supposed to be doing in life. All of this external noise is there to get your attention. Adverts, sex, material things, fashion, entertainment etc etc What use is any of this to your journey? None of it is. Its all about money, fashion and clothes are about money, sex is money, material things that have no real use are about money, entertainment is about spending money and food adverts with alcohol are all about stealing your hard earned money and to cause a distraction so you cannot focus on what is important. Sitting still is free. You get entertained and educated. You give your mind and body a rest and you may just create something that actually has purpose and use in your life.
Lastly Id like to talk about gratitude. A friend of mine today ranted on the phone about someone that has been disloyal to me recently, they lied about something they should not have and they caused a pointless issue within my current life situation. Instead of being angry along with them I said look, what will be, will be and if they’ve lied and changed a path in my life then just let it be. Sometimes things we perceive as bad things in life could always have the potential of being a good thing. We do not know right now how that thing could change our life for the good! Be open to ideas and be grateful of every moment and experience you have in life. Bad things as we see them may not always be bad things. Just be present, just be grateful you are alive and happy on this journey we are on together. Be thankful of all that is around you and just think how god damn lucky you are to have what you have. There is always a thousand people who have it much worse than you do if you believe you have it bad. Just be grateful you are not in their position. You have your health, you have what you need and thats all that matters. Silly things like liars, cheaters and people who want to mess your life up are not worth the time or the upset. Block out the haters and keep your frequency high.
Stay balanced and stay neutral. Deal with things as they come and just be forever present. If you can live in the now, you will have no worries about tomorrow and you will not hold onto what happened yesterday.
Be still, be present and be grateful.
